1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    General update because I'm a bit overwhelmed by PMs, offers, and such and I should have been clearer in my post: The trunk was not thrifted. I'm working for an estate that owns it and I found it today buried in a garage. I posted it because I knew you'd all enjoy seeing it, especially if the contents end up being clothing, too, and I'll post updates (if the estate's okay with that) for the sake of it being cool as hell.

    I am a lowly intern who just happened to know a bit more about Hermes than the rest of the crew, so the real appraisal will be going to a specialist, I'm sure.

    Hah! I know this thrift store and had seen this shirt. :) Almost picked it up myself but funds and space are dwindling and I'm trying to be more selective.... I've had hit or miss luck with this place... What a coincidence!

    Uh oh. Another MN thrifter? We're going to need to either:

    A. Start a Google Drive spreadsheet that we update when we're planning on hitting certain stores.
    B. Turf wars. [​IMG]

    Here are some finds from my last outing. I would say you definitely want to go hunting with @Kamotejoe@ he brings the best thrift Karma.

    Kamote actually found and gave me the Kiton. The best part about all of this is they are all my size lol.
    I also got a RLPL and Incotex slowear pants (found by Kamote) which I gave to my dad.

    Haha, funny. Yeah, it had last week's color tag so I figure it had been there since maybe Friday night or Saturday. Yeah, that store is more miss than hit these days.
